KIRKUS REVIEW

What begins with an American bookkeeper's uncovering of corruption in high places becomes a different matter altogether once Jimmy Bustillo finds he has to play a game of hide-and-saki with his girlfriend Nikki Miyoto in order to stay alive. She's the ""debauched"" lush-junkie daughter of a Tokyo-based consortium family which hopes to avert a ""Japanese Watergate"" by importing an underworld hit man. Bustillo (who's actually an ex-CIA agent named Warton) is being stalked simultaneously by a computer expert he can finger as a defector from British Military Intelligence. A good deal of heavy-handed kinetic activity full of kickbacks of one sort or another.
